Meathead March – The Magic of Belle Island (2012) – Tranquil Dreams

Check out my second (and last) post to the Meathead March blogathon over at MovieRob’s. If you haven’t heard of it before, its a blogathon dedicated to Rob Reiner’s movies. This time around, I reviewed a much newer movie that I’ve never heard of until I did this blogathon called The Magic of Belle Isle with the ever so talented Morgan Freeman who finds himself again as a lost writer.
While you’re there, remember to take a look at the awesome posts for the other movies for the this blogathon. Rob Reiner has directed some really impressive movies.

Happy Thursday! 🙂
